When trying to get a guy’s attention, knowing how to engage him in conversation always works. These fun questions to ask a guy will do the job.
Guys like fun. They like girls who are laid back and know how to have a good time. So that means getting their attention is easier if you show them a more exciting side of you. Which means you’ll want to know some fun questions to ask a guy.
Because the best way to show him you’re a good time is through conversation before you even hang out. He may not even want to hang out until he realizes you’re fun. Then he can get to know you and that’s when you show him who you truly are and get him to like you.
Being fun and being easy aren’t the same thing
Not even remotely. A lot of girls like to think that being easy and flirty and sexual is “fun” to a guy. While guys might give you attention for this, it’s not the same attention as they give girls for being fun.
Being easy and overly sexual sends the wrong message. It’s basically telling a guy that you just want to get in his pants. And believe me, he’ll definitely seem interested, but only at first. Once he realizes that was just your way of getting his attention and you weren’t serious, he’ll end up moving on. [Read: 18 things you do that make guys think you’re easy]
Fun questions to ask a guy to get his attention and keep it
When you’re just getting to know a guy you like, asking the right questions can mean the difference between not having him and a great relationship. Here’s how to show him your fun side and gain his affection.
#1 What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done? While he might not want to divulge the most embarrassing thing he’s ever done, it would be funny if he did. If anything, he’ll think back to a fun time and if he shares, you’ll be in on a little secret with him. [Read: 15 painfully embarrassing things that happen during sex]
#2 When was the last time you made a fool of yourself? We’ve all done it. It’s not quite the same thing as embarrassing yourself, either. It’s more of a time when you just did something silly or stupid and just wasn’t thinking. It could lead to some laughs and a great conversation.
#3 What’s the funniest thing in the world to you? One way to get someone laughing is to talk about something they find funny. Not only will you learn more about him this way, but you’ll also determine if you two have something in common. If you both have the same sense of humor, it bodes well for a future romance for you.
#4 If coffee wasn’t legal, what would it be called on the black market? This is just a cute and fun question to get his mind turning. You can talk about what it would cost, if people would make up different variations, and more. It’s a great conversation starter, too.

#5 If your life was a movie, what would be the theme song? Not only will he have fun with this, you’ll also get to know a bit more about him. His taste in music will become evident, but so will the events in his life. It’s like a sneaky fun question.
#6 What’s a movie you’re embarrassed to admit you love? This will show you where his true tastes lie. Many guys say they like action movies or stuff that’s more mainstream. This is not only fun, but it shows you a different side to him that others won’t often get to see.
#7 If you were given $10,000 tomorrow, what would you do with it? This is a super fun question because there are so many possibilities. Being $10,000 richer suddenly is a big change for a lot of people. You’ll find out how he would spend the money and even if he’d rather be responsible and save it.

#8 What’s the first thing you’d do if you woke up as a girl? I think we all know this answer but it won’t hurt to ask. In fact, it’ll be really fun. Just be prepared for him to ask the same of you if you woke up as a guy – and be honest! You’ll both be laughing in no time.
#9 What’s the grossest thing you did as a kid? We’ve all done icky things as kids. I used to play, “guess what’s in this” with my siblings where we’d dump all sorts of condiments into liquids and make each other drink it. That was nasty. Ask him what he did and see if it’s really that gross.
#10 If your life was a reality show, what would the name be? This is another way to find out more about his life while also keeping the mood and tone light and playful. He’ll tell you what he’d call it and that’ll show you a lot about him and what his life is like right now. [Read: 30 deep questions to ask someone and get to know them better]
#11 If the last thing you ate is the only thing you can eat for the rest of your life, how soon will you die? If the last thing he ate was a full meal of nutritious foods, he’d be safe. If the last thing he ate was a chocolate bar… he might die a bit sooner. This is just a goofy question that can lead to a longer conversation.
#12 Would you rather be smart or happy, but not both? Why? This will tell you a lot about him. Most people would choose to be happy because who would want to go through life not feeling that way? But you never know. Some people may choose to be smart. Find out where his thoughts lie.
#13 If you had the chance to live on Mars, but could never come back, would you do it? This is a real possibility for some people. There are those who may actually go to Mars someday and never come back to this planet. See what his thoughts are and just how adventurous he can be.

#14 What’s the last thing you cried over? You may not get an honest answer out of this, but it’s a little bit deeper. However, it’s still fun because some guys cry over silly things. And he might just tell you what he cried over as a kid and usually, those things are pretty silly.
#15 What’s your dream job – if you could do absolutely anything? Imagining a dream life is always fun. Ask him what he’d do if he could do anything. You’d be surprised what he might choose. Then you can talk more about it and why he’s not doing that. It’s a fun question that can lead to a much better conversation.
